  • Playing handbells is a great way to foster the development of strong rhythmic skills, physical coordination, and listening skills. It's also an effective way to teach the basics of music-reading (direction, reading lines and spaces) and provide young children with an active way to play and make music together.
  • Training Christian leaders through our “Raise The Standard” student government program.
  • Our 5th and 6th Grade Handbells Teams participating in the Bay Area School Handbell Festival at All Saints School in Hayward, California.
